Going through a divorce is almost always a trying experience, but it can be made significantly more painful in situations where the two parties don’t agree on key issues, from not wanting to end the marriage to disagreeing on how to divide assets or child custody. When the spouses seeking to separate have found themselves at odds over the terms of ending their union, this is referred to as a contested divorce.
What Issues Arise in a Contested Divorce?
When two people are preparing to separate their lives after a marriage union, the splitting of personal and financial assets is an undeniably complicated and emotional process. In contested divorce proceedings, the two individuals involved cannot come to a reasonable agreement about certain issues.
These issues may include:
- Property and assets
- Financial debts
- Alimony payments
- Child support
- Child custody
- International custody disputes
In the case of the two parties being unable to reach a mutually agreeable solution to one or any of the above-mentioned items, the court may order mediation proceedings. The two individuals and their attorneys must then reach agreements with the assistance of an impartial mediator. If you have reached a point in your divorce proceedings where forward motion has stalled, or if you anticipate that your divorce will include conflicts over major items, turn to Arcaro Law Group. Our knowledgeable legal team will strive to protect the things that are most important to you.
